Broccoli Couscous with Tomatoes and Parmesan

Broccoli Couscous 

with Tomatoes and Parmesan

 

This recipe is originally from Cooking Light, but I think adding the tomatoes really increased the moisture to this dish.  I would even consider adding more herbs, or if you aren’t watching your calories, olive oil at the end.
